The Classic Cupcake Co

The name “Classic Cupcake Co” can be deceiving. Although they’re well known for providing excellent classes on how to bake the ol’ traditional cupcake, they also provide a variety of workshops for cupcakes of all shapes and sizes, all equally pleasing to the eyes (and buds). This is of course in addition to their cupcake decorating masterclasses, which are absolutely second to none.

Bourke Street Bakery

With baked goods dubbed “life-changing”, Bourke Street Bakery has made a name for themselves in and outside of tiny Surry Hills. Their baking and pastry making classes are no exception to providing a life-changing experience, which include exceptional hands-on training of everything there is on bread.

Gelato Messina

Ice cream is still the coolest treat, regardless of what time of year. And if we’re talking about the cream of the crop when it comes to ice cream, Italian is the way to go. Gelato, ice cream’s Italian cousin, is more than just a passing fancy. In fact, it’s more than ice cream. It’s churned at a much slower rate, so it comes out silkier, softer, and more packed with flavours.

Why scream for gelato instead of ice cream? Gelato Messina, one of the best places for gelato and gelato making classes in all of Australia, will show you why.

Sydney Chocolate School’s dessert classes will turn you from just another chocoholic to an inspired chocolatier as they teach you to make beautiful, glossy, melt-in-your-mouth treats using traditional French tempering methods.
